Too Beautiful to Live is the ultimate foray into pop culture— a blithe examination of 
what's awesome and what isn't, what's in and out, what matters and what doesn't, 
and what stands as the gem-iest web gem. In between analyzing important matters 
like MTV's Rock the Cradle, My Super Sweet 1 6, R. Kelly's trial, Ross Dress for Less 
and the song of the summer, hosts Luke Burbank and Jen Andrews candidly 
discuss their own lives. Something between 'a show about nothing,' and 'the voice 
of American hipster Zeitgeist,' TBTL is funny, endearing, and beloved: a show that 
will never leave your heart and mind upon getting its foot in the door.

Luke Burbank 

Burbank began his career in radio by pinch hitting across a variety of shows and 
genres, working either as a producer or as on-air talent. His work touched a 
number of shows, including The Conversation, Rewind, and Day to Day. He later 
became a reporter for NPR before starring as a regular panelist on the comedy 
show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! After a stint on The Bryant Park Project Burbank 
returned to Seattle to begin work on Too Beautiful to Live. 

Jen Andrews 

Jen Andrews served as producer for a variety of shows at KIRO before becoming 
executive producer of Too Beautiful to Live. The show marked the reunion of 
Burbank and Andrews, who had known each other since childhood. Andrews left 
the show for a time after its cancellation from radio and subsequent transition to 
the podcast format, but soon after rejoined Burbank as he broadcast from his 
home, "Burbank Studios." 

Sean DeTore 

Sean DeTore worked at KIRO-FM as a radio engineer. With a penchant for aged 
audio media like cassette tapes and vinyl records, DeTore was beloved by listeners 
for his eccentricities and liveliness. After KIRO cancelled Too Beautiful to Live, 
DeTore continued to appear, albeit intermittently, on TBTL's podcast incarnation.
